Do you want beautiful floating shelves — ranging from a small shelf positioned “just so” to take everyday bits and pieces, a larger shelf above a radiator, or more substantial shelves — maybe a neat three-shelf practical working bookcase or corner bookcase, or perhaps an eight shelf floor-to-ceiling bookcase or full-size alcove shelves — all with no visible brackets?
Shelving in various forms is available from a wide range of retailers. But if you are after a real “fitted finish” floating shelf or bookcase, fixed and painted to blend with your decorations as you choose, the choice is limited. Usually, it’s a case of finding a carpenter or make it yourself. Skilled craftsmen often are not easy to find and tend naturally to prefer larger projects.
The Shelfbar® system works through a combination of a unique design and fixing system applied to the best quality engineered materials and manufacturing. All painting is after installation to achieve the best fully fitted finish. Not just for trade professionals, these high performance floating shelves can be successfully installed using everyday DIY skills.
The result is beautiful, strong floating shelving, painted to blend with your colour scheme — precise match, gentle toning or bright contrasts as you prefer. While solving shelving dilemmas, the uncluttered bracketless installation enhances the appearance of a room, adds scale and even makes small rooms look larger. Shelfbar shelves are timeless and less is more. Our shelves are strong to carry any reasonable book weight and also elegant for precious item display.
How strong are Shelfbar shelves ?
This question can be answered a number of ways, but we think “can they take my books?” is the load measure most people want to know.
All Shelfbar® designs have been tested on a range of solid wall and plasterboard surfaces and they can easily support as many books as can reasonably be fitted on them. With no bend, no wobble and no sag.
We have put the bookcase shelves which have the additional ‘bookend’ wire supports through some extreme tests – take a look at this photo, but please DO NOT TEST OR USE the shelves like this yourself, we just wanted to test beyond the bookcase shelves’ reasonable limits.
